EU Green Week Partner Event

Workshop On Good Practices And Lessons Learnt On Waste Prevention

  • Events 16.05.2019
  • Location Brussels, Belgium

The Parliament of Navarra adopted last June a Law on Waste and its Taxation (attached) with the aim to develop prevention measures to produce less waste, to implement high-quality separate waste collection, particularly with regard to organic matter and establishing a new taxation system, that penalises waste sent to landfill and creates a waste fund. The money collected by the fund will be used to fund circular economy projects. In this workshop the law from Navarra will be presented together with good practices of waste prevention from Portugal, Germany and the region of Brussels. 

Dr. Henning Wilts, Director of the Circular Economy Division at the Wuppertal Institute, will give a keynote speech at the event entitled "Three good examples in the area of waste prevention". The event will finish by a wrap up of good practices that could be exported to other regions.

The workshop will take place in Brussels on Thursday, 16 May 2019 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Further information can be found under the link below.
